This is a war. Which is why you don’t start them in the first place. Which is why you don’t start them unless you absolutely have to. Unless you know you have no other choice. Unless you know how to end them as quickly as possible. Unless you’re ready not only for what will be done to your enemies, but what doing that will do to you. Unless you think you can carry that, because you sure as hell can’t prevent it all.
That’s not what Loesch meant, but it is what she said, however unintentionally.
This is a war.
